You guys, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I LOVE doing any kind of themed craft or activity! One of the best things about Halloween is of course the candy right!? Chocolates, gum balls, pumpkin shaped treats, everyone loves candy. So when I was given the chance to try out some awesome candy from Sweetworks I knew I had to jump on it! Have you ever heard of Sweetworks? They are a company that has been selling sweet chocolates and confections for more than 50 years and are known for selling the best brands like Sixlets, Celebration, Ovation, Oak Leaf, and Niagara Chocolates!
Check out the yummy candy I got to try out from Sweetworks:
Oh yes, we tried all of them, and they all rocks. My daughter LOVED the Ovation Chocolate Break-a-parts, and my husband loves the Sixlet’s for an afternoon treat. As for me, I’m a big gumball person, and the eye gumballs not only made me laugh, but also lasted a lot longer than other gumballs I have tried! So after we tried all the treats I had an idea for a super fun DIY Halloween Candy Centerpiece! Would you like to learn how to make it? Let’s get started!
You will need:
- Spooky Eyes Gumballs
- Halloween Mix Gumballs
- Halloween Mix Sixlets
- 2 glass bowls (I got mine for $1 each at Michaels)
- 2 small Terracotta Pots and bases (Also $1 each at Michaels)
- 2 wooden balls ($2.49 for the pack at you guessed it, Michaels)
- 1 small foam pumpkin ($2.50 at Michaels)
- a Glue Gun
- Black Paint/Purple Paint
- Creepy Cloth ($1 at Dollar Tree)
- A Cutting board (Or any other base you would like to use!)
Here is how to make this DIY Halloween Candy Centerpiece:
Step 1: Paint your terracotta pots and bases black, then let dry. (They dry really quickly!)
Step 2: Using Hot Glue glue the bottom of your glass bowl to the bottom of your terracotta pot. Let dry completely before trying to move it.
Step 3: Paint your wooden balls purple (Or any other color you wish!) and once they dry, hot glue them to the top of your terracotta pot base.
Step 4: Now you have a DIY Gumball Machine! How cute right!? Set these aside so we can work on the next phase of our DIY Halloween Candy Centerpiece!
Step 5: Bring out your foam pumpkin and give him a mouth under the stem (which will become his nose!) I just used a kitchen knife to make mine, ha!
Step 6: Give your pumpkin some eyes on either side of his “nose” I just black paint, and then purple to make him look creepy!
Step 7: Cover your cutting board in creepy cloth, and glue your pumpkin on the side of the board, angled in.
Step 8: Now it’s time to bring in your Sweetworks Candy! Fill your new gumball machines with gumballs, and your pumpkin with sixlets, spread the sixlets across the board to make it look like your pumpkin is “throwing up” candy, gross right!?
And that’s it! A super simple DIY Hallowen Candy Centerpiece that is sure to wow your Halloween guests this year! Make sure you get plenty of Sweetworks Candy so you don’t run out before the big day!
